Thai Buddhism , Buddhas and Buddhist Artefacts 

Buddhism in Thailand is mainly of the Theravada variety.  Approximately 95% of Thailand's people are Theravdan Buddhists, though the Buddhist religion has incorporated into its practice a lot of animistic beliefs alongside Chinese beliefs from the large Thai-Chinese population. The distinctive Thai Buddhist temples are notable for having golden stupas, and the Buddhist architecture of Thailand is like  that of other Southeast Asian countries in particular that of  Cambodia and Laos, countries and cultures with which Thailand shares a common cultural and historical past.

We have documented a few of the distinctive statues, artefacts and objects to be found inside Thai Buddhist temples.
